The Dark Horse

The Dark Horse (M)

Once a local chess-champion, Genesis Potini has spent the last few years in and out of mental institutions. On the condition that a family member takes care of him, Gen is released from the ward into the home of his estranged, gang-member brother, Ariki, and Ariki's soon-to-be-patched son Mana. Needing a purpose and a reason to get out of the gang-pad, Gen joins a local chess club populated by displaced Gisborne youth. At his first club meeting, Gen announces that he is going to lead them to the National Chess championship tournament in Auckland in only six weeks time. Based on a true story. Watch the trailer here

Maps To The Stars

Maps To The Stars (MA15+)

The Weiss family is making their way in a sun-soaked Los Angeles, driven by all the wrong values and rife with money, dreams, fame, envy, yearning and angst. We witness the desperate world of shallow celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by one of their twisted own. As much as it is a sharp, wicked look at a vacant and corrupt society, Maps To The Stars is also a very human ghost story and a claustrophobic nightmare. With this tale of a dysfunctional Hollywood family on the verge of implosion, acclaimed director David Cronenberg forges a brilliant, scathing and darkly comic satire of our celebrity-obsessed culture.

My Old Lady

My Old Lady (M)

New Yorker Mathias travels to Paris to sell a grand old apartment he has inherited from his estranged father. But he is stunned to find a refined old lady, Mathilde, still living in the apartment with her very protective daughter Chloé. He soon learns that under ancient French law known as viager, he will not gain possession of the property until Mathilde dies and must make monthly repayments to her until such time. A hard-up writer with no other assets to his name and no money for a return fare to New York, Mathias realises with bitterness that he has in fact inherited a debt. Much to the dismay of Chloé, the spirited 92-year-old Mathilde offers Mathias lodgings in the apartment until he works out what to do. Long-held secrets are soon revealed and hostility turns to affection as the three characters open up to reveal their scars and discover a shared history. Watch the trailer here

Winter Sleep

Winter Sleep (M)

Living in the picturesque and striking landscape of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, Aydin is an actor who runs a small hotel with his wife, writes a column for the local newspaper, and is toying with the idea of producing a book on Turkish theatre. Like all the villagers, Aydin has time on his hands, but as the film progresses, director Nuri Bilge Ceylan carefully strips away the veneer that surrounds this self-satisfied and insular man. Through some magnificent set pieces, beautifully written and performed, we get a close look at Aydin's interactions with his wife, his recently divorced sister, and a family of locals who are tenants of one of his properties. With a steady, penetrating gaze reminiscent of that which Ingmar Bergman brought to his chamber pieces, the director cuts through the smug self-image of a man who considers himself of elevated stature, but is ultimately brought face-to-face with who and what he truly is. Winner of the 2014 Palme d'Or. Watch the trailer here
